Physical Education

At Berkswich CE Primary School, we value PE greatly as a subject. We believe that PE is an essential part of a child's educational development. It provides children with a knowledge about their health, fitness and wellbeing throughout their lives. At Berkswich we believe that PE inspires every child across our school to participate and compete in a wide variety of engaging and challenging activities.
